We are excited to hold the 2019 Vermont Dance Alliance Symposium on January 13th, 2019 to start the year in creative collaboration.
10:30-11 Arrival & Welcome! Amy E. Tarrant Gallery at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. Main Street, Burlington Vermont.
11-12 Workshop #1- Adaptive Strategies: Movement Translation with Toby Macnutt.
When working with dancers, a teacher, or a choreographer whose body or experience is very different from your own, you find yourself in the position of movement translator. Interpreting movement for or from other people is its own skill set. In this workshop we'll walk through the steps and practice thinking outside the box to make sure the translated movement is practical, effective, and aesthetically sound. Please wear comfortable movement clothes.
12-1 Workshop #2- Embodying Wild with Pauline Jennings
In this workshop we will explore what it means to experience and be nourished by wild, why it's important to cultivate these experiences and how to create opportunities for wild in our artistic practices. During the workshop, participants will engage in dialogue, quiet embodiment exercises and journaling. No previous experience necessary. Please bring a journal or paper, and pen or pencil.
